speculation among the major airlines. the president is calling for an investigation into the west virginia mine explosion earlier this month. 29 men were killed in the blast - federal inspectors are figuring out what caused the explosion at massey energy's mine. inspectors will also be sent to mines across the country with troubling safety records. the president says companies should be forced to make safety changes... and not just pay fees for violations. "we do know that this tragedy was triggered by a failure at the upper big branch mine -- a failure first and foremost of management, but also a failure of oversight and a failure of laws so riddled with loopholes that they allow unsafe conditions to continue." the president says companies that consistently violate safety standards - should be subject to tougher enforcement. shares of massey energy are down 20% since the explosion. "we fear that the president has been misinformed about our record and the mining industry in general."
